South Euclid-Lyndhurst Branch
Saturday, May 11 / 2 PM

Join us for a poetry reading to welcome home and celebrate Cleveland native Kevin Prufer, author of seven poetry collections.

Publishers Weekly gave his most recent collection a starred review, praising How He Loved Them (Four Way Books, 2018) as remarkable and accomplished. He is editor-at-large of Pleiades: A Journal of New Writing and co-editor of a number of works. Among his awards and honors are four Pushcart prizes, multiple Best American Poetry selections, numerous awards from the Poetry Society of America, and fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts. Prufer earned degrees from Wesleyan University, Hollins University and Washington University. He teaches in the creative writing department at the University of Houston and in the low-residency MFA program at Lesley University.

Refreshments will be provided by the Friends of South Euclid-Lyndhurst Branch. 

Books will be available for purchase and signing courtesy of Mac's Backs - Books on Coventry.
